Week 15 {Development}



Baby Suarez now measures about 4 inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in at about 2.5 ounces (about the size of an apple). She's busy moving amniotic fluid through her nose and upper respiratory tract, which helps the primitive air sacs in her lungs begin to develop. Her legs are growing longer than her arms now, and she can move all of her joints and limbs. Although her eyelids are still fused shut, she can sense light. There's not much for Baby Suarez to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. We may be able to find out whether Baby Suarez a boy or a girl, but it’s still a little early to be 100% sure.
